Great drugstore finds!

I'm sure everyone's heard about the new Wet N Wild (yes Wet N Wild lol) drugstore matte lipsticks! The cosmetic brand is really stepping up their game with these super affordable lipsticks at $2.99! Yes the lipsticks are matte, but you could always throw some lipgloss over it for a little shine. I'm very impressed and looking into getting more colors!

L-R Pink Suga, Bare it All, Just Peachy
Swatches in the same order as above^^^

Now the only problem I am finding with these lippies is that one of them feels loose in the tube, and it's dancing around and kind of smearing on the lid, grrr!! Anyone else have this problem or did I get a bad tube?? I'm gonna suck it up cuz these are dirt cheap LOL!!

I also heard some mixed things about the new NYC creme blush sticks so I purchased 2 to try them out! I bought a pink one, I think the name is Pink Sand??? And a plummy color (having a HUGE brain fart right now and can't remember for the life of me the names of these!) But at $3.99 I wanted to test these out for myself!

Swatches without flash

I will write a review on these in the upcoming weeks, because it's been so friggin humid and hot here, I haven't been wearing too much makeup these days. I have tested out the pink one and am liking it so far but need further use on it before I can give my honest opinion on it. Anyone else try these out? What color(s) do you own?? Let me know in the comments I'd love to hear!!

Till next time bellas!!

Review: Benefit High Beam

 Benefit High thoughts

Hello dolls! Hope everyone had a fabulous week! In my May favorites I mentioned Benefit's High Beam which has become my new HG liquid highlighter. Miss K asked to see how I use it, so I thought I'd do a review and let you guys know what I think about it, so this post is for you girl and anyone else who hasn't discovered this baby!

Sephora describes it:
What it is: 
A luminescent complexion enhancer

What it does:
High Beam is an ethereal pink liquid highlighter that creates a radiantly dewy complexion. For an angelic sheen, this pink shimmering lotion adds a soft, natural afterglow.


It's very easy to apply, I first put on my foundation and blush, bronzer then I take my high beam and dab 3 small dots on each cheek, 1 dot down the center of my nose, cupids bow, and chin. I then take a Mac 188 brush and blend it in swirling motions until it's well blended out. 

Voila! Perfect dewy glow

What I love most about this highlighter is that it's not glittery, and doesn't bring out your pores or make you look greasy (I have oily skin).
I got my High Beam when Sephora had the bundle for $35 which included the High Beam, Hoola bronzer, Gilded pencil and Bad Gal Mascara, awesome steal if you ask me! Otherwise High Beam alone sells for a whopping $24 for 0.45oz! It's still cheaper than Mac but a little on the expensive side for the amount you get, but hopefully it will last me a while. 
Some people don't like the nail polish look it has but I don't mind it, I think it's different, and I like different. I will def continue to purchase this baby, hopefully Sephora will have another bundle deal soon;) 

Who else loves High Beam?? Let me know how you apply it and if you love or hate it in the comments!

Have a great weekend loves!

Memorial Day weekend!!

Hey dolls! Happy Hump day!! I wanted to share a few pics from this past weekend, it was Memorial Day weekend, also my older cousins birthday so me and my friends surprised her and took her up to Foxwoods casino on Friday night and partied like rock stars for the night and did a little gambling, didn't win big but that's ok lol! Here's a few pics of what I wore, etc. I did a simple face of the night because it was so hot out and I just simply did not want to wear or pack too much makeup. So all I wore was concealer, powder, and a smokey eye using Mac's Blactrack fluidline and a few shadows, and Hue lipstick. It was my first time staying in this gorgeous casino so we had a really fun time there. Enjoy!

Here's a few pics of our room:

Finally Arrived!!
 Few shots of our room

The bathroom was gorgeous!

Overall we had a very good stay and a fabulous weekend! Anyone ever been to Foxwoods Casino?? Tell me about your stay!

Any questions let me know in the comments! Hope everyone's having a great week!!
